It’s undeniably tempting to try something different for me as we approach 31st October! Although we do not use many decorations for Halloween, I decided to try my hand with a Black Bats themed home decor.
To set the mood, I pulled out black, grey, white pattern papers from Memorandum and Cedar Lane’s collection. Since I decided that I wanted to have a dominant black setting, I played around with similar tone pattern papers. It was a lot of fun putting these DIY handmade paper accordion flowers.
Using a black Ikea frame as a starting and focal point, I framed a black and white pattern paper (Memorandum: Desktop Pattern Paper) and layered vellum photo paper and accordion paper flowers.
Everything was pretty much quick to assemble with the help of the Silhouette. I churned out a Bat mask (Halloween Bat Mask) for added fun and die cut bats on black card stock (Bats and Moon). Since it was a Black Bat themed home decor, Heidi Swapp’s Bat Marquee was an excellent addition!
I particularly LOVE the flip side of Memorandum: Label Pattern Paper (#310015). It has scripted motifs in cream tones and exudes vintage vibes! Perfect addition.
It’s great how old vintage books, apothecary jars, spiders etc. could look great together! Go ahead, search through the storeroom and you might never know what you had could find to help put a simple home decor together.
